This one needs a 


before it as is documented in the cmake manpage (which I don't know how to
access on windows unfortunately) and the top of the FindBoost.cmake file.

The module itself only knows about versions up to 1.36.1 as boost thinks
its funny to include the version number into the library names. The
variable allows to support later versions.
